Parents

Welcome to the CSC family! Whether you are new or have had other children attend WashU and pass through the CSC, we welcome you into our mission here. We are your student’s resource at any point in their college career where they can explore faith, get to know themselves, or to simply take a break from the rigor of the WashU atmosphere. Open 24/7 with 4 full-time campus ministers, a dedicated priest, and an even larger staff committed to the students, our space and community are designed to be available for the students no matter when they need or what life throws at them. We offer Mass four times a week and have a plethora of other faith and community events where your student can plug in, Catholic or not!

We also love to keep in touch with the parents and caregivers for these students during these years and after the students leave! You are such an integral part of their lives and we would be remiss to not reach out. Therefore, we have several annual events where visiting families can get to know our staff and see our center.

  • Open House is held on Friday of move-in weekend in the Fall and allows parents and students to get a tour from an upperclassman and meet the staff!
  • Liturgy and Libations is a Mass and reception held on the Saturday of Parent’s Weekend where families can celebrate the Eucharist together and get the opportunity to spend some time with the CSC community afterwards.
  • Baccalaureate Mass and Graduation Open House are held over graduation weekend for families of our graduating students. This is our last chance to spend quality time with our amazing graduates before they head out of our doors. It is always such bittersweet celebration! Of course, we welcome you and your family any other time of the year you happen to be in town! Just stop on by our center, introduce yourselves, and we can show you around.
 

We appreciate your support and couldn’t fulfill our mission without your help!
